finding the slope is simple. all we need to do is re-write the equation in terms of y and we'll go from there.
so wouldn't it be -Y=5-8X?
correct. One more step, let's get rid of the negative.
we do that my multiplying both sides by -1 or divide both sides by -1
It is the same but sure, let's divide.
-Y=5-8X --------- -1 ?
when you divide an entire side, it means each term has to be divided.
the general rule is that whenever and equation is in the form of y=mx + b m is the slope/gradient and b is the constant of y-intercept.
A more mathematical term would be that the first derivative of an equation will tell you what is the slope. If y = mx + b then (dy/dx) = m
I hope this makes sense....
it does thank you!
the slope is 8, therefore it is going to the upper right since it is positive and it is steep
hmm why not y = 8x-5?
@Photon336 , what do you mean?
wait lol nvm
